“It will be tough. They will come with a game plan to try and frustrate us. They have got good attacking threats; I don’t think they will come and just sit in and defend and hope to get their clean sheet. I think they will come up with a way of trying to cause us problems.
“The onus is on us, as it normally is when we are at home, to try and break the opposition down.
“I am a big admirer of what Stuart and Stevie have done there. Last season they won promotion, they won the Challenge Cup and they started the season well. Where they are now, it has given them a little bit of breathing space at the bottom of the league. They will know themselves that they have got work to do to stay in the league and they will see tomorrow as an opportunity to get a positive result.
“We expect a tough game but like we say most weeks they have got to expect a tougher game from us.
“Being at home we want to carry on the attacking threat that we have had of late. We have scored eight goals in three games. Regardless of who we are playing we want to carry a threat and hopefully we can see that tomorrow.
“I watched their game against St Johnstone. They hung in there and St Johnstone passed up opportunities to score. The fact that they battled as well as they did do shows you there is plenty of spirit there.
“You normally get that from newly promoted teams and are desperate to stay in the league. They have got a lot of players there that have equipped themselves very well in the league and it is good to see Ross County in the Premier League.”
